Here’s the commercial for Madonna’s MDNA Skin Care line. I adore her, but the only thing I could think of when I saw this was, “I hope all their old skin comes back to haunt them.” My undying love to whoever gets that reference.

Ezra had his biggest role to date in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, which garnered rave reviews, with most critics singling out Ezra for his performance as Patrick. Here’s Ezra talking to Peter Travers about the film, and self-identifying as “Queer.” Kids today.

We’re shifting the focus of the latest Briefs List back to the greatest aspect of 80’s pop culture … the music, which remains the ultimate pop music decade. For this list, we’re going to focus on the ladies, and countdown the The Top 100 Hits Of The Ladies Of the 80’s. There are only two rules: all the songs had to hit the Billboard Top Ten, and they’re all sung by women … whether solo or with a group. Ready to jog your memory?

At #62 is … “You Keep Me Hanging On” by Kim Wilde. Kim holds the UK record for being the most-charted British solo female act of the 1980s, with 17 UK Top 40 hits, but she only hit the Top 40 on the Billboard chart twice, with “Kids In America” (#25) and this remake of The Supremes classic, which hit #1 in June 1987.
